Recovering the American Sublime
New Paintings by Erik Koeppel and Lauren Sansaricq in Historical Context
Pace Galleries of Art at Fryeburg Academy
Opening Reception – May 6, 2017 from 4 to 7 p.m.
The essential thesis of the 19th century American landscape painter was that by deep reflection upon the beauty of nature, one may ease their weary soul of the troubles inherent to a social being thrust into the industrialized world. Today, as humanity travels further from nature into stark modern interiors and cyberspace, artists Lauren Sansaricq and Erik Koeppel believe that a powerful vision of nature is more needed than ever before. They have thus devoted their minds to reviving an art whose intention is to bring the beauty of nature back to the forefront of human consciousness.
In this exhibition, the paintings of Koeppel and Sansaricq are displayed in juxtaposition with 19th century landscape paintings of the White Mountains. As the couple shares a studio in Jackson, NH, White Mountain subjects are prominent among scenes of New England, and even works from their travels west. The historic paintings are on loan from the collections of the Jackson Historical Society, and Bethel Historical Society, as a promised gift of Randall H. Bennett. Many of the contemporary paintings are available for sale.
The Pace Galleries of Art are open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 am to 1 pm (or by appointment). Call the box office at 207-935-9232 to schedule a visit.
The Jackson Historical Society has it annual show and sale this evening from 5 to 8. There will be many available historic works from 19th century white mountain artists , also in the show will be available works by Me and Erik Koeppel.
The Museum opening is also tonight. The show is called “The Jackson Five,” at The Jackson Historical Society Museum and features 5 artists who have or have had their studios in Jackson, NH: Frank Henry Shapleigh (1842-1906) , Mabel Williams (1870-1944), David Backer (1915-1999) , Erik Koeppel (1980-), Lauren Sansaricq (1990-)
I am so honored to be giving a lecture on my process as a landscape painter and how it relates to the Hudson River School, Nov. 3rd between 7 and 7:30pm at The Currier Museum , in Manchester N.H.
The lecture also aligns with a remarkable show the museum is doing on 19th century white mountain art called “Mount Washington: The Crown of New England”.
In my lecture I plan to discuss the Hudson River School artist’s approach of working from drawings and plein-air sketches to make their larger studio paintings. And more generally how these artists saw and studied nature.
Please join me Nov. 3rd! Should be a wonderful evening.
